Written answers (Question to Housing)

Work is at an advanced stage of development of the funding scheme referred to by the Deputy.  I expect that the process will be substantially completed shortly when the necessary regulations dealing with the financial assistance arrangements and related administrative matters are put in place.  This will enable a circular letter, terms and conditions, guidance and the application form to issue to local authorities shortly thereafter.
